“I recorded the live EP set to give people an idea of what I am doing musically,” says Andrew. “The EP set is a little more diverse than the tracks on the album, but it is a good introduction into what is coming on March 19th when we release the album. Because of the pandemic regulations we were unable to have an audience for the concert recording, but now that it is up on my Facebook and YouTube, everyone watching will become the audience for my first solo live concert. I hope you enjoy it!”
Anticipation rises as Farriss’s self-titled debut solo album is set to be released on March 19, 2021. He has already released a few songs from the album leading up to the release, including the “Run Baby Run” music video that features a visual representation of the story on an antique train. When it came to penning the tracks for the album, Farriss had looked within and through personal experience had written a collection of songs that bring to life stories of outlaws, freedom, cowboys, and love, and paint vivid imagery of gun-slinging bandits, Australian history and international cultural spirituality. With INXS not having any touring plans in the pipeline, and a slew of original material in his songbook, Andrew has now embarked on a solo career that sees him taking a stand in the Country-Americana genre; and this is only the beginning.
“I love writing songs and telling stories that hopefully resonate with people. I have not followed any trends or formulas creating these songs. What I have written and recorded is different. I like different, different is good.”
